These are Gamakatsu's straight shank worm hooks for bass fishermen who prefer rigging their plastic worms and soft plastic baits on a hook without an offset shank. These hooks feature the O'shaugnessy bend and bait holder points which cut into the upper part of the shank to keep the worm from sliding down when you drag the bait through rough cover. And since they are Gamakatsu Hooks, they feature ultra-sharp conical points that stick to whatever they touch, to give you the most advantage possible. These lighter hooks can be used with any plastic bait you care to throw, but they really shine with smaller plastics and finesse rigs. This hook has a hard, bronze, corrosion resistant finish that keeps the hook strong and sharp, like you just took it out of the package.
